As a charity we are very conscious of budgets and getting the best value for money whilst retaining an eye for quality. We have used the services of Headway Recruitment for a number of years and really value their processes and the result it has generated for us. Recently we approached the team at Headway to recruit a Supported Housing Officer. They excelled in finding us a perfect fit. Headway understand our organisation and have been key in our continued success in breaking the cycle of homelessness in Bradford.
“In 2016 I felt like we were on our way. The work was streaming in because clients were recommending us because of the results they were getting. I thought we were on our way to the next level. Then in the course of 6 months we lost 3 members of the team in succession. But fortunately I’d met Mark by then and, despite my initial scepticism, Headway were able to quickly provide a shortlist of interesting candidates. They also introduced psychometric profiling to our recruitment process. So we now assess how well candidates will ‘fit’ with our existing team and with the culture I want in the business. Now our new team is thriving and taking the business forward. Last year was our best year ever and the team are taking on more and more responsibility, so I can focus my time on where I add most value.

After unsuccessfully trying a few agencies, when trying to attract high calibre candidates, we contacted Headway Recruitment. I was immediately impressed by their level of professionalism and knowledge, and one of their consultants was swift to come out to visit me. They really got to grips with our requirements, and their use of psychometric profiles really ensured that we received the right candidate fit for our business. Headway sent us two excellent CVs and we actually offered permanent roles to both candidates. They were honest in their approach and kept me informed during the whole process. Every time we now have a vacancy Headway are our go to agency!
When I needed a new team member for our sales division, I contacted Headway. I wanted to see what impact psychometric profiling would have on the recruitment process.To say I was impressed is an understatement. With new staff in the past we never knew who would perform and who would struggle. The team member Headway found for us stepped into the sales team and within a month was consistently a top performer. On average she was hitting 175% of her sales targets making over £100k worth of sales a month. This was because Headway took the time to visit us and understand our work culture. Their selection process made sure only those candidates with the right drive and results focus were submitted.To anyone thinking about using Headway I would say simple do it. Their results speak for themselves.
We were in desperate need of a good Receptionist for our front desk at Queensbury school. Our searches had been time consuming and fruitless. We approached Headway and Mark came out to meet with us. Shortly after he provided us with a shortlist of candidates. We ended up employing Charlotte on a temporary to permanent basis. Headway provided an updated DBS check, as well as a detailed report on her Word and Excel skills. Her psychometric profile proved to be spot on. Charlotte’s profile indicated that she would be enthusiastic, upbeat, driven by collaboration. We would highly recommend Headway and their thorough recruitment process.
We first approached Headway Recruitment over 10 years ago when we were in the process of growing our small team in our fledgling business. From the outset we were impressed by their professionalism and dedication they had to finding us the perfect fit. As the business has grown we have continued to use Headway’s services and over the years we have had over 15 successful placements. The candidates they have placed have become an integral part of the team, many of them progressing into more senior positions. They truly do what it says on the tin ‘Headway Recruitment, growing businesses, building careers’.
